An interview with screenwriter Teresa Lewis regarding the Blazing Quill Writing Competition.Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?
The story is set in an ironic age of enlightenment, the renaissance, in a time when art is life and knowledge-- well let's just say that many want knowledge to remain hidden-- because knowledge equals power and a means to control the masses.
A womanizing artist then uncovers more than the nudes he captures on canvas when he faces his fears and finds love that changes his life.
Rebirth is based on a true story of the abuse of power versus the power and honor of a humanist and a few brave hearts-- fascinating characters who give up their wealth, their estates, their rank and privilege, in a cause greater than self. It is a powerful story that values honor and a love story that transcends time.
From the reviews: entertaining, exciting, enlightening, inspiring. it's message transcends films that are preictable and gimmicky" etc. refreshing, it doesn't insult your intelligence, etc.
A: Honestly, I really liked the name. I have always loved the symbolism behind a quill pen. It reminds me that so many great poets and writers used them, not to mention documents like the U. S. Constituion was written and signed with a Blazing Quill.
Regarding Wins, yes, a recent Frst place at Epiphany, and the others are listed on Moviebytes as well, in winning scripts.
A: They did a great job. I have no complaints.Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?
A: In the congratulations letter, they kindly wrote a few lines as to why they felt Rebirth is so powerful.Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?
A: Actually, yes. I have two major players-- both reading Rebirth. One wants it included in their production slate, but as of today, all of my options are open.Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?
A: My background is one of a scholar, someone who truly has a passion for learning for its own sake. My degree is in Psychology and Cultural Anthropology and additional training in Education and Digital Editing and Marketing. I especially love history and the lessons to be learned from it.
I have written several other screenplays, including another historical romance in progress, as well as two off the wall comedies. I also have a winning reality show concept that I'm looking for someone to pitch...
A: Not at this time, although I lived there as a child. I would love to return and reminisce. My sister lives in Camirillo is always asking me to visit.Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?
A: Always working on a script, usually several at a time. At present-- three almost full time. One I am especially proud of, a blend of science and seduction, called "Beyond Reason." I live to write and to research. It is genuine and as natural to me as breathing. I even write and direct in my sleep. I just have to remind myself to breathe deeper sometimes and to stop and look at the stars-- as numerous as my many blessings.
I can honestly say I have met some wonderful people through the writing and contest process.
